The Champions League Final was moved from Russia to Paris as a show of solidarity against the Russian government, but what goes into such a decision? Big sporting events are a well-choreographed set of negotiations involving everyone from the venue, to the international broadcast teams, to the global and local sponsors, to the fans and making last minute changes can throw any or all of those into breach of contract.
